The National Construction Institute (CI), one of eight Institutes in the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), was established as a result of a merger between the Construction and Materials Divisions at ASCE.
CI is the first national organization designed to meet the needs of all individuals working within the construction industry. Membership not only includes those persons involved in building the construction project, designing the construction projects, and teaching construction, but also equipment suppliers, material suppliers, testing laboratories, bonding agencies, insurance providers, financial firms, accounting firms, and legal firms that support and contribute to the growth and development of the construction industry. Given the fragmented nature of the construction industry, CI was founded on the hypothesis that a need for cross cutting networking and technical exchange exists. CI was established to provide a collaborative forum for every participant in the construction process.
The East Central Branch CI was formed in 2014 and has since expanded efforts to deliver technical development programs to its members here in Central Florida through luncheons, technical seminars and tours.
